MSN is closing down!

This must be true because I got it in an email and some of it is even IN CAPITALS!

Hey it is Andy and john the directors of MSN [ah yes, Andy and John, our good friends at MSN], sorry for the interruption but MSN IS CLOSING DOWN! this is because too many inconsiderate people are taking up all the name (eg making up lots of different accounts for just one person), we only have 578 names left. [How do they know it's 578? That's really weird]

If you would like to close your account, DO NOT SEND THIS MESSAGE ON. If you would like to keep your account, then SEND THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. This is no joke, we will be shutting down the servers. Send it on, thanks. [So the servers are going down anyway? Now I'm confused. I better do exactly what the email says.]

WHO EVER DOES NOT SEND THIS MESSEAGE, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CLOSED AND YOU WILL COST 10.00 A MONTH TO USE. ["You" will cost 10.00 a month to use? What, I thought I was free! Now I'm going to have to pay for myself! I'll pay myself in smarties as the exact currency wasn't specified.] SEND THIS TO EVERYONE ON YOUR CONTACT LIST. NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. PLEASE DO NOT FORWARD THIS or REPLY. COPY THE WHOLE EMAIL. GO BACK TO YOUR INBOX AND CLICK ON NEW. AND PASTE THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION
I'm glad Andy and john got my attention. I hope they got yours too.

Note for those without an IQ: this is not true.

Well, I think that it was a TOTAL scam, and that so called 'andy and john' were some people or person wanting everyone's contacts because if you copy and paste it, like on the email i got you could see all these contacts that i didn't even know some of them were in a different language! So, you know how it says that you have to copy the message and you have to copy and paste your contact list on to this so there going to see your contact list and your 26 or more contacts who are probaly your friend. So your putting yourself, your friends and there contacts in danger!

They maybe telling us to post to at least'18' contacts to find out if most of us actually use msn and ahve the right amount of contacts instead of just using it for gaming adresses or just once a month visits.

Nika said...

I lold. I've recieved 3 letters with the same crap now. I can't belive that poeple actually are buying this? For example, it says you just have to look at msn.com to find out that it's true. Ok, sure thing, but I had to search for "andy john msn shutting down" to even come close to this "news", and the first resulst were about Msn Chat shutting down (I think that's where people get convinced and stops reading). And whats more, "John" isn't even spelled with a capital J in the letter. And WHY should they be so familiar enough to not write their last names? Unlogical-know-nothing-about-computer-people are so funny.

It's really retarded how people believe in this stuff. And that link? It was dated in 2001?! People are honestly so stupid or blind for that matter. They don't even bother checking if it's true or not.
And whoever started this thing has real grammar issues, yet they think the general public will fall for it. Oh wait, the general public did. What a sad, sad world.

Annelie said...

Lol. I have never fallen for this hoax. It seemed a bit too weird having to pay for closed down servers and an account that will be erased.

Funny comments to each quote in the fake letter too.

These make me howl with laughter I see so many that it always makes me wonder who has time to start these off (assuming they do a enmass mailing) and why would they want to, if they were trying to sell something or promote something like Polaris World and they made something out of it, they don't even know if it being proporgated or not what a waste of energy.
